Melbicks was opened in 2002 and it is definitely has a very modern looking exterior.
It is a large garden centre and has a full range of plants, garden accessories and other goods for sale.

This is a totally independent GardenAction opinion of Melbicks Garden Centre in the Birmingham area.

Melbicks garden centre is extremely large but finding your way round was no problem. Large overhead signs lead you clearly to all their departments.


The outdoor plant area was attractively designed and well kept with no plant debris lying around.

The plants looked healthy, well watered and in correct pot sizes.

The range of plants was good although not as large as we would expect from a garden centre of this size.

All the normal plants were there and well signed. The range of fruit trees was good as the picture on the left illustrates.

All hardy plants came with a five year guarantee. There was no outdoor help centre but there was a help desk at the entrance to garden centre.

The website has an online shop but this does include any plants.

The range of pots for sale was massive and there was an excellent of greenhouses, conservatories and sheds on display

We forgot to note the prices of the accessories (apologies) but the prices of the plants was average.

Rose, 3 litre pot �5.99 upwards

Common shrub (e.g. potentilla) �7.99

Clematis �7.99 upwards

Potted fruit tree (various rootstocks) �27.99 upwards

Growmore, branded, 4kg Not noted

Miracle Gro, soluble plant food, 1kg Not noted
